Dedicated area for the sharpening station
finally a dedicated area in the shop…
Never too late!
The more woodworking I do the more I realize that half the work is sharp irons.
And I was really tired to have the water grinder, water and sharpening gear all over the place, so even my shop is really small, I decided to dedicate a little area to sharpening.
It’s right behind my workbench, so I will need only to turn around to touch up an iron.
First step is to cut up some waterproof plywood, the kind that is used for concrete formwork.
As you can see I use the MFT3 Festool table and saw, promised some time ago to show how it worked.
Silicone and a nailer.
And viola, the waterproof tray is a reality.
Fitted to my old storage unit.
Sharpening station is finally a reality – jubiiii.
A shelf added behind for gear.
The tray can move in and out so it functions as a little table.
Thank you for watching, small improvements can have a big impact sometimes.
Hope this can inspire others to dedicate a little area of the workshop, no matter how small your shop is,
